Phightin's! NBA '08! Oh and '09!
First things first. Congrats to the Phighting Phils, World Champs. A well deserved and great story. Hats off to Tampa as well, AL Champs and rightly so had a fantastic year. And I’ll go back a year or so and laugh at the idiots that crucified me for saying “Ya I’d play in Tampa” last year as something other than what it was. An open acknowledgment of how far that organization has come.
Cole Hamels, damn, that was impressive. He’s a force already and I see he, Jon Lester and Santana as the 3 of the top 5-6 pitchers in this game for the next 5-10 years.
The Celts get their rings the other night, and take down Lebron and the Cavs in their season opener. Pretty awesome stuff to see Boston sports continue to rise higher and higher across all the Majors.
Tim Thomas has like 412433 consecutive shut out periods, great stuff.
EA is the first company to get the Fantasy league thing right! The NBA game allows daily downloads of players from the live, real world stats! Players are going to mirror real life streaks to a degree. Think fantasy football on Red Bull!
Great stuff and kudos to Peter Moore and the gang at EA Tiburon on another great product. I wish I liked Soccer because it seems the entire world of ‘European Football’ is going crazy over their FIFA ’09 game….
P.S. I forgot to mention Peter is still 0-1 from 50+ but thanks for the games! And Tana, thanks for managing those hooligans over there at EALA….
